but come ye back when spring is in the meadows,
or when the hills are hushed and white with snow,
ye’ll find me there, in sunshine or in shadow,
o danny boy, o danny boy, i love you so
but if ye come, and all the flowers are dyin’,
and i am dead, as dead i well may be,
then you will find the place where i am lyin’,
and kneel and say an ave there for me.
and i will hear, though soft your tread above me,
and then my grave will warmer, softer be,
and you will bend and tell me that you love me,
and i will wait in peace unti you come to me.
frederic edward weatherly…”DANNY BOY”….
this is a song garanteed to make me weep…no matter how many times i hear it…
